    Praying problems

    Report bad ads?

    Asalam Alaykum. Well i think with all my previous threads need hel waking for fajr (etc) i think some clever and wise people must've guessed that i have trouble praying.
    Heres the problem. One day i pray and the other i don't. Before i went to the Playland (lots of rides) i started to pray and then the next day i went to Playland for 9 hours and i was so tired i couldn't get up and i didn't pray. What can a person do.
    Heres what i have to do daily.:
    School.Homework. soccer.

    Re: Praying problems

    If you are physically too tired to pray standing up you can always pray sitting down or laying down.

    Either way you have to pray regardless if you are physically too tired, sick, or just unable to pray standing. I would say to pray sitting down since you are probably physically too tired to pray standing.

    I hope this helps brother. I wish you all the best

    I have the same problem. I pray one day, and the next I find myself too exhausted from work/play. I'm anaemic and I think I also suffer from Fatigue and I'm tired and short of breath ALL THE TIME.

    Oh and by the way, how do you pray laying down?

    Also, the fact is my wudu keeps breaking and I can not keep it for longer than 5 mins, especially when I'm waiting for the next namaaz and I try my best to stay in wudu state. I don't know how other people can keep it so long.

    Re: Praying problems

    I understand praying fajr is difficult and if one misses fajr we are a lot behind throughout the whole day. what i do is - 3- 4 alarms. snoozing every 5 minutes. till i wake up. this is physically. but the actual thing that drives is .

    On the authority of the mother of the believers, Umm Habiba Ramla bint Abi Sufyan, she said, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) say “There is no Muslim servant of Allah who prays twelve supererogatory rakats from other than the obligatory prayer for the sake of Allah most high except that Allah makes for him a house in paradise”’ [Muslim].

    On the authority of ‘A’isha’, the mother of the believers (Allah be pleased with her), the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said ‘The two [sunna] rakats of the Morning Prayer are better than the world and what it contains’ [Muslim].

    A’isha’ (Allah be pleased with her) also said ‘The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was not more diligent about performing any supererogatory prayer more than the two [sunna] rakats of the Morning Prayer’ [Bukhari & Muslim].


    Plz read this link
    http://www.ummah.net/Al_adaab/fiqh/sunnah_prayers.html

    Its difficult - but once u practise and impose it upon urself and give it the utmost importance to protect it on time. Allah subhanawatallah makes it easy for you. It becomes a part of your life. further what we need to take care is after its habit - the sincerity - thats the key. if its not there allah forbid and make us sincere in our efforts.
    ameen.

    I will inshallah include u all in my prayers and you all include me in your prayers.

    Re: Praying problems

    Before you go to sleep:
    • Recite Chapter 1, 112,113,114.
    • Your Iman and Niya before going to sleep will wake you up for Fajr.
    • JazakAllahu Khairan. ♥

    So, what I do is keep 2 alarms next to me and I keep one (really loud one) as far away from my bed as possible, so that I have to get up to turn it off.

    Parents shouldn't allow you to miss fajr prayers.

    Tell them it is to help you get up for fajr prayers.

    Do you watch television or work the computer right before you go to sleep?
    The light from the screen causes the body to produce chemicals that keep you awake.

    Re: Praying problems


    Fajr is really hard for me to get up. But at night I try to prep myself.
    If you have a hard time getting up and sincerely thinking about praying Fajr:
    I learned that if you first try to exaggerate your excitement and need to pray Fajr, you'll slowly start to get that attitude. And then you'll really be excited to pray everyday because after a few prayers, the result on your imaan will be evident.
    If you have your own room and use a clock to check the time: Use the alarm to wake you up, but I also use a big clock on the wall. Right next to the wall, make a poster with a reminder to pray Fajr or an ayat that always picks you to the right thing. Have something that reminds you why you are trying to wake for Fajr and turn your life around.
    And I have posters to remind of Islam, Fajr prayer lol all over the wall next to clock so when I wake up I see them, and realize that I need to wake up!

    There always tiny things that you can start to do, until you get the habit down =)
